I would rethink that "Triple Channel Kit" for your application. Now, if you want to spend that money on an I7..............

A GTX 295 will work with any motherboard that has a PCI express x16 slot. Of course, your power supply needs to be powerful enough to run it, which yours is. A DDR3 kit will improve performance on the AM3 board. However, AM2+ processors will not work in an AM3 board, but an AM3 processor will work in an AM2+ motherboard.

you might wanna take a closer look there, all of AMDs newest AM3 CPUs support DDR3, including the one he just listed, and will support the 1600. People often overlook AMD lately and wont give them a second glance because low and behold Intel makes the better processor right? yeah for like 3 times the money, when in reality the AMD offers in my mind comparible performance in most areas for a quarter to 1/3 the price, and then when AMD doess come out with a CPU that really rocks everyones so focused on their intel they dont even notice. dont get me wrong, intel makes good CPUs, theres days I wished I had a Core 2 myself, but you know, I like AMD just as much, and that is a wicked nice CPU he picked out there. and as far as handling the 295, it will easily handle that and more of them. Personally id go the 4870, but the nvidia 295 is a nice card and compatible with that system.

The GeForce 295 is a superior card to the Radeon 4870 and, in most games, the Radeon 4870 X2. Like the 4870 X2, the GTX 295 is a dual gpu card. However, the 295 is, depending on who the card manufacturer is, $50 to $100 more expensive than the Radeon 4870 X2. The motherboard you've chosen has four memory slots in a dual-channel configuration. i suggest getting RAM kits that have two sticks instead of three since you can fill all slots without wasted RAM modules. The kit you have chosen is meant for triple-channel RAM setups. You can still use that memory, but one memory bank would be unable to use dual-channel since there is no memory module in the fourth RAM slot.

Purchasing two of the RAM kits below will fill all RAM slots on your motherboard and give you more RAM. The triple RAM kits are designed for i7 motherboards which have six RAM slots in a triple-channel memory configuration, which your motherboard does not have. This RAM is far more economical than the Kingston RAM you chose.

Here's a review comparing the 295 to the 4870 X2 and the GTX 260 in SLI: [H]ardOCP - BFGTech GeForce GTX 295
